Local resident Thaer Mohammed Awad was beaten by Israeli soldiers on Tuesday, August 14, 2012, as he headed to Jerusalem to pray.
The 23 year old was walking to Temple Mount, on the holy Muslim holiday when he was attacked by the soldiers.
After being thrown from a two meter wall, breaking bones and severely cutting his feet, the man was continually beaten despite his screams to ‘stop’. Soldiers then continued to further humiliate the man by making him crawl a distance of fifty meters on his hands and feet. Witnesses to the attack called the ambulance, which transported the man to Hussein Hospital in Beit Jala, where he is now being treated for his fractures.
